PixelJunk Monsters 2

In a short video message shared yesterday on Twitter, Q-Games detailed two changes coming soon to PixelJunk Monsters 2 via a Software update:

  • zoom out feature for Single Player, so you can see more of the map;
  • local co-op multiplayer: the map zooms out when players get further and further away from each other.

Unfortunately, we don’t know when that update will be released.
